Rev. Dr. Joey Shelton

It is right and a good and joyful thing always and everywhere to offer my thanksgiving and praise unto you almighty God… for all of the people of Galloway as they…

...welcomed Bailey and Jessica in January, 2008 and continue to embrace all children who walk into the doors of Galloway, befriending and parenting them as faith family, standing in the gap, offering them guidance and support in ways only a loving faith family can...

...accepted joint senior pastors, spouses at that (!), allowing Connie and me to be ourselves in the calling placed upon us...

...supported Connie in her transition to the Bishop’s Cabinet…

…faithfully carried forward in ministry through the complicated process of capital additions and renovations, personal illnesses, grief, economic recession, and staff changes...

…continue to take seriously the gift of “place,” literally and metaphorically, standing as a bridge between power and those on the margins of society…

…act as a priesthood of all believers in congregational care, nurture, and formation…

…are courageous and prophetic in witnessing to the entire Metro Area that pilgrimage matters; monuments of hope are needed for the common good; we stand on the shoulders of the saints who have pioneered before us; Jesus calls us to be a mission station of love for all people...

…embody life as sacrament - an outward and visible sign of spiritual grace to a hurting world...

And so in remembrance of these your mighty acts in Jesus Christ I offer my thanks and praise as a holy and living sacrifice as I remember the mystery of faith: Christ has died; Christ is risen – I see the bread of life and the cup of salvation working through the people of Galloway UMC; Christ will come again…

With gratitude beyond words, all my love in Christ to each of you,

Rev. Dr. Joey Shelton
